A ukulele by pop star Billie Eilish went under the hammer in calories – for a good cause. That changed for $ 8,000 hand-signed instrument of the brand Fender the owner. In addition to the singer, other great musicians and celebrities such as Elton John donated and Hans Zimmer instruments, clothing, and other personal items. The proceeds from the auction will go to the Grammy Academy's MusiCares Foundation. Above all, she helps needy and sick musicians.

The proceeds for Eilish's ukulele were by no means the largest amount paid at the Beverly Hills auction. For one Amplifier set des former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman they even bid $ 51,000. A Gibson guitar by singer Harry Styles brought in more than 28,000 US dollars (around 24,000 euros) – more than nine times the estimated value, by the way. A piece of paper came to a similar sum U2 singer Bono donated to the auction: The handwritten lyrics for the song "Love is Bigger than Anything in its Way" raised $ 22,000.
